Kerrville Folk Festival favorites, Albert and Gage, are accomplished performers, both individually and as a duo. Christine released several solo albums before meeting Chris, has appeared on Austin City Limits and was voted Female Vocalist of the Year by the Kerrville Music Awards. She is the cofounder/president of “Swan Songs”, a non-profit that fulfills musical last wishes by organizing private concerts for individuals with a terminal illness. Christine is also Chair of the National Board of Trustees of The Recording Academy. Chris played his first gig when he was 13. Later,
he spent eight-years playing piano with country star Roy Clark, making
appearances on Hee Haw, The Tonight Show, and The Grand Ole Opry. Chris toured with Jimmie Dale Gilmore as bandleader and he currently plays lead guitar in Jerry Jeff Walker’s band. He
has performed at Carnegie Hall and Royal Albert Hall and in 2011 Chris
was named Musician of the Year by the Academy of Texas Music. Chris and Christine began performing together in 1997 and have released 6 albums together. Their
most recent CD, Dakota Lullaby, landed in the top 40 on the Americana

Christine Albert..."has it all: charm,
authenticity, good material, true humility, beauty, talent, sex appeal, intelligence and
on and on. A real class act." Austin Chronicle, Austin, TX
Chris Gage is a "...songwriter, singer, dobro player,
ace guitarist, keyboard player, mandolin picker, and a generally electric powerhouse with
inspiration to spare." Sweet Potato, Minneapolis, Minnesota
"This folk/country duo have created a harmonic sound
with original and compelling performances that are hard to match.
Chris Gage and Christine Albert are an electrifying pair who offer a range
of music from country and folk to rock and the blues. The Austin-based
singer-songwriters are often compared
to other primo country pairs such as George Jones and Tammy Wynette." Lindsey Rausch
"Albert and Gage are individually
very talented singer songwriters and together they are a power house of folk rock. Christine Albert and Chris Gage are not to be
missed. The house rocked...and the piano is still smoking." Glen Duckett, "Flowers in the
Desert" House Concerts, Brenham, TX
"Country, rock, blues, folk, French torch - it didn't matter. They nailed 'em
all. Christine Albert alone is a singer-songwriter of no small talent. Put her together with Chris Gage - a powerhouse in his own right -
and you have a duo that's just about unstoppable!" Bill James, Belton Acoustic Concert
Series, Belton, TX
"What a fantastic time everyone had at
our recent house concert with Albert and Gage. Christine's exquisite voice,
coupled with Chris' masterful guitar playing, left everyone breathless. Their
harmonies made the rafters in our home ring like never before. A night that we, and our guests, will never forget!" Arlene and Mark Klemow, Split Level House Concerts Scotch
